The United Nations-African Union peacekeeping force UNAMID, which was established in 2007, is tasked foremost with protecting civilians and securing humanitarian aid for Sudan’s Darfur, where violence has left nearly 300,000 dead and two million displaced. The International Criminal Court’s chief prosecutor last month asked the United Nations to investigate the damaging claims and several Security Council members, including France and Britain, supported the request.
